Many of the gamers who purchased Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for PC had an unexpected surprise. When the installation procedure required them to insert the second disc, for some reason, it wasn’t recognized by the system.
The Autorun dialogue box unveiled the mystery: the second DVD that came with Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 had the content of Mass Effect 2 written on it.
A mistake like this is unprecedented in the gaming history, as the two titles, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Mass Effect, come from two different publishers. It’s the first time we have found an Activision game next to an EA Games title in the same box.
Unfortunately, you can’t play either of them, as Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 2nd DVD was mistakenly replaced by the company that manufactures the second disc containing Mass Effect 2. Fortunately, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 can still be accessed and installed, as the game runs exclusively via Steam.
Once you activate the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 key inside the online distribution service, the new title can be download directly from the Steam servers, with no restrictions and no need to introduce the installation DVDs in your computer.
Seeing that the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 – Mass Effect 2 situation has become an embarrassing one as more and more users were complaining about it, EA decided to reward the customers who received half of the game by offering free Mass Effect Trilogy copies. In order to be able to receive the free package, the customers will have to send a picture of them and the broke DVD 2 of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 package to EA, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
